Embrace a larger purpose. A good boss works to achieve company goals. A memorable boss also works to achieve goals — and achieves more than other bosses — but also works to serve a larger purpose: to advance the careers of employees, to rescue struggling employees, to instill a sense of pride and self-worth in others. They aren’t just remembered for nuts and bolts achievements but for helping others on a personal and individual level. Memorable bosses embrace a larger purpose, because they know it is always personal.
